Down and out at Porcupine Gorge

Porcupine Gorge from the lookout.

The Pyramid

At bottom of gorge after a 1.1km walk down, it is now 1.2km to go back up, according to the sign. R explained this was due to being able to take bigger steps going down.

Last night we were at Porcupine Gorge NP about 70km north of Hughendon. No water, power or showers but a pretty good pit loo based on new natural decomposition technologies and we had solar for lighting. The loo was quite efficient but in middle of summer it might be a bit on the nose.

This is a great place, a bit of a steep walk down the gorge, we did it in 1 hour and took only 45min to get back up. Great scenery and inviting water at the bottom. Have headed back to Hughendon and are off tomorrow to Richmond on a day trip to see more dinosaurs.
